Question about Toshiba Satellite 2450-401 Notebook

Toshiba Satellite 2450

The hinge on this laptop is housed inside the perforated metal speaker cover on each side. On the right side this metal cover has become raised from its original position by a few millimetres and it moves when I open and close the screen. The screen itself has become a little loose.

It sounds like the hinge itself is broken. I have a relative with exactly the same problem, her laptop screen became floppy and didnt stay in the upright position. The hinges for the screen are complicated in that they appear to come as a top/bottom part already joined together, and need to be replaced as such. The metal used for the hinges is really flimy and easily snaps. this sounds like what has happened to yours. The problem is that is appears to be not econimcally viable to repair, and your probably better off scrapping it or buying another with say;.. a cracked screen and doing a swap-over of parts to get one fully working one (thats what I did)

You should probably try to remove the speaker cover (may require loosening the case screws or even opening the case) where you'll probably find that the hinge attaching screws on that side have worked loose. if that's the case you can use Blue LockTight on the tip of each screw before replacing them to insure they don't come lose again unless you need them to.
Good Luck.

PS: I recently worked on a Satellite that resembled your description of the speaker grills in relation to the hinge points, but didn't notice either of the symptoms you mentioned. When I see it or one like it again I will pay close attention to the speaker grills and hinge tightness/looseness.

How do i perfor a system reset on a toshiba


hi, try this....


the back part of your laptop where your memory card goes to and then remove the memory card look for the word jopen1. you will see a metal letter U and letter T. Use a metal paper clip on the metal letter U and then put the other end of metal paper clip on any metal part of the main board for a few seconds. And then after that put everything back together and see if it works. From there you will be asked for a new password (any password that you would like to use), save and then restart.

note: there's a plastic piece on the metal letters U and T. don't pull it all the way off from it. Hope this will help.

Wifi network


This laptop definately doesn't come with inbuilt wifi card, but does contain the necessary socket to either connect one internally (along with already built in aerial cables to connect it to:) or to use the PCMCIA card slot to insert/install a network card into the side of the machine.

Remove screen on Toshiba Satellite 2450


It appears the hinge has come loose and possibly the video and/or inverter connection. Here as a disassembly guide for a different model, I'm sure how similar it is: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba2435/sat2435_LCD.htm
Be sure to remove the battery and check the bottom of the laptop for any screws that may secure the cover.
